Here's the scoop. Karen, the beautiful bride, is great at arranging flowers and had planned to make the centerpieces for the reception herself. It was a small wedding, so they only needed 11 arrangements, but time started to run short.
Instead of freaking out and staying up all hours, Karen, God love her, did what all brides should do -- let go! She recruited all of the women at the barbecue/rehearsal supper to arrange flowers.
Judy, Karen, Mary, Elena and Cathy tackle the flowers.
But first, how about a little tequila to get everyone loosened up...
That may have worked a little too well! I don't think florists typically behave like this when doing wedding arrangements, or any other arrangements for that matter.
The flowers turned out beautiful. (Really, they did!) And while the bride and groom had a wonderful wedding, I suspect it's the making of the centerpieces that we'll all remember for a long, long time!

Congratulations, Karen and Dan. We wish you a lifetime of happiness, and I am so glad I could be there to share your special day...and your tequila!
